BRUSSELS, September 25. /TASS/. The European Union (EU) will consider additional actions it can take to bring all parties to the negotiations table, High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini and Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection Christos Stylianides said in a joint statement published on Saturday.
"We therefore call on all those countries with influence on the regime, as well as those with contacts among the armed opposition, to apply the maximum pressure to cease the attacks, allow unhindered and continuous humanitarian access to those in need, and resume political negotiations under the auspices of the UN in Geneva as swiftly as possible," the statement said adding that "the EU will review the additional actions it can take to bring all parties to the negotiating table."
The statement also noted that "the situation in Aleppo has seen a dramatic and rapid deterioration over the past 48 hours, despite continuing efforts of the international community to re-establish the previous cessation of hostilities."
On September 23, the Medecins Sans Frontiers (MSF) medical humanitarian organization said that 23 people were killed and another 145 injured in airstrikes in the eastern part of Aleppo over the last 48 hours. On the same day, Stephane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General, said he suspected Damascus of intending to undermine efforts on restoring the cessation of hostilities in Syria.
